End Citizens United

End Citizens United recently announced they have endorsing Rob Quist for Congress. Quist is running for a special at-large district in Montana and strongly opposes the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling. In a nutshell, Citizens United was a landmark Supreme Court ruling that literally opened up the floodgates for politicians to get out-of-control donations from special interests.

 

End Citizens United was particularly impressed with Rob Quist’s campaign because it has been an entirely grassroots affair throughout. Quist has relied on small contributions throughout his congressional run. The man definitely practices what he preaches.

 

End Citizens United does as well. They have over three million members who have an average contribution of $14. This group recently announced that it has raised $4 million during the first three months of this year. They also project that they will raise over $35 million dollars for the support of candidates within the 2018 mid-term elections. Luckily, over 100,000 people contributed to this PAC during the first part of this year. They also were able to attract 40,000 people to give to the organization for the first time ever.

 

In a lot of ways, this political action committee was birthed at just the right time. Needless to say, there are a lot of people who are frustrated with politics as usual in Washington, and they feel that this PAC is one way where they can make their voices heard. In a way, it is particularly telling that the average donations do not come from the deep pockets of oil executives, big pharma, or many others.

 

Indeed, this committee is a group that was made by the people and for the people. They will continue to fight the good fight for the common man just by getting small donations a little at a time. The system is truly rigged, and many are starting to realize it. They realized that Hillary Clinton is no different than Donald Trump and Donald Trump is no different than Hillary Clinton, and they want to see real change in Washington. And as they continue to join together, they will see real progress in many important areas in Washington and the country.
